It’s a fun gift box and as Diwali is arriving it could be a perfect gift for anyone.
 It can hold 4 items and that too in such a small space!

Here’s a look at the completed Tower Box:

So let’s begin with the pic-tutorial…
 

step1

I started with a black thick sheet of paper measuring 12.5 by 6 inches.
Here 0.5 inches (in 12.5) is for securing box so that it could close well, so for further measurements keep this 0.5 aside & all measurements will be done with 12 inches only.

step2

Now score it as shown in the picture below:

Divide 12 inches into 4 parts of 3 inches & 6 inches into 4 parts of 1.5 inches.
White boxes running diagonally is the space to glue smaller paper boxes. In rest of the space glue pattern paper of your choice.

 
Here is the picture after adhering the pattern papers…

Now let’s make smaller boxes, for this I picked 4 thick pattern paper sheets of 6 by 6 inches.
Took one and scored it horizontally & vertically as per the measurements shown below

Added the sparkling SHIMMER PASTE-SONOMA using
the BRICK STENCIL from Craftyscrappers.


It was so easy to use this small stencil, Craftyscrappers have an option to customize stencil size of your choice, isn’t that great to get as per your requirement.

Here’s how it looks, once shimmer paste applied:
